Bonifacio, E. Rodriguez off-ramps of Skyway 3 now open

  • San Miguel Corp. on February 11 opened two new ramps of Skyway Stage 3—A. Bonifacio northbound off-ramp, just before the Cloverleaf Mall in Balintawak, and the E. Rodriguez southbound off-ramp on Araneta Avenue, which provides access to España
  • More north and south access ramps to open soon

Two new ramps of the 18-kilometer Skyway Stage 3 are now open, with more north and south access ramps to follow, according to concessionaire San Miguel Corp. (SMC).

Opened to motorists on February 11 are the A. Bonifacio northbound off-ramp, just before the Cloverleaf Mall in Balintawak, and the E. Rodriguez southbound off-ramp on Araneta Avenue, which provides access to España.

“With the opening of these ramps, those who are coming from Alabang, Parañaque, Piñas, Pasay, or Makati will no longer have to take EDSA and get stuck in several traffic chokepoints in order to get to Balintawak,” SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon Ang said.

“Meanwhile, those coming from NLEX headed to Quezon City, on the other hand, can opt to take Skyway 3 to get to E. Rodriguez Ave.”

Ang said contractors for SMC Infrastructure are working continuously to deliver other access ramps, noting full completion of these ramps was delayed due to pending right-of-way (ROW) acquisition.

“Despite delays, we’re excited for the next access points to be opened soon. For northbound motorists, next to be opened will be the Quirino Entry, Nagtahan Entry, Nagtahan Exit, E. Rodriguez Entry, and C3 Exit. For southbound, we will soon open the C3 Entry, C3 Exit, A. Bonifacio Entry, Plaza Dilao Exit, and Nagtahan Exit,” Ang said.

“Once all of these access points are opened, traffic in many parts of Metro Manila, especially major thoroughfares, will be virtually a thing of the past,” Ang added.

Other operational access ramps include:

Northbound

  • Buendia (Zobel) Entry
  • Quezon Ave. Entry
  • Quirino Ave. Exit
  • Quezon Ave. Exit
  • Bonifacio Exit
  • Balintawak Exit

Southbound

  • Balintawak Entry
  • Quezon Ave. Entry
  • Plaza Dilao Entry
  • Quezon Ave. Exit
  • E. Rodriguez Exit
  • Buendia (Zobel) Exit

Skyway Stage 3, built and fully funded by SMC and officially opened last January 15, allows motorists to bypass EDSA and other busy streets in Metro Manila.

Seamlessly connecting South Luzon Expressway with North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), it will also serve as an alternative thoroughfare to EDSA, with its eight access points that traverse Makati, Manila, San Juan, and Quezon City.

These access points are Buendia, Plaza Dilao, Nagtahan, Aurora Boulevard, Quezon Avenue, Sgt. Rivera, Balintawak, and NLEX.

The elevated expressway allows travel time from Buendia to Balintawak in just 20 minutes, and Alabang to Balintawak in only 30 minutes.
